1v1 Close Down & Defend (20 mins)

Setup As Shown: 30x40. area. Create passing box 5x10 by one endline with 4 cones. Player B start cone 8 yards from box. Defender (C) start cone is 10 yds from box.

Activity: Keeper will play a ball out to player A. Player A will take a touch to receive and then play a pass into the passing box. Player B and defender C cannot leave until the ball leaves A's foot.

B's objective is to get on the end of the pass and go for goal.

If defender wins the ball can score by dribbling through the high gate.
